My Last Blog

Happy Late Spring!!!!

As with every season there is change.  My business has changed.  I will remain a distributor of Nu Skin products and as such will continue to serve you, my customers, but will no longer be actively seeking new business through blogs, Facebook and newsletters.  You may be wondering, why? 

I began having issues with Nu Skin when they did not like my blog because I used the company name, Nu Skin, and product names along with product images. In good faith to maintain an amiable relationship with Nu Skin, Joy removed the company name, product names and images from the blog.  Not but two months later Nu Skin copied the exact layout of my blog to update their own. Recently, they added “product tips” just like I had in my blog.  Unable to properly market the products in my blog and with no marketing help from Nu Skin corporate against the mass marketing by Avon and Mary Kay, just to name two competitors, expanding my business became impossible.  But the “icing on the cake” was when the FDA stopped Nu Skin from selling the Galvanic Facial Spa.  In December, the FDA decided it was a “medical device” and required a prescription from a doctor.  Competitors market similar yet less effective devices.  Nu Skin’s primary focus is on the Asian markets where there is no FDA.  They even have retail outlets in China.  I feel that due to complications with the FDA and who knows who else, Nu Skin has left the North American distributors without both, marketing support and direction.

I still love the products and use them.  The ageLOC anti-aging products are the best I’ve ever used.  The LifePak Nano vitamins have helped me look and feel better than any supplements I have ever taken. So, I am happy to assist you in any way I can with your products to look and feel your best.

This is my last newsletter.  If Nu Skin has a new and exciting product, I will email you personally.  Please feel free to email me at

FYI: I'm never bored. I am now the President/CEO of eduGuard, an online classroom for California Security Guards. Joy and I have been working hard to get this business off the ground (and into the cloud.)

The Power of NaPCa!

Have you ever wondered why you are supposed to use NaPCa with your anti-aging facials?   This amazing product brings 3 molecules of moisture for every molecule of NaPCa on your skin.  What is the biggest problem with aging skin?  Dryness!  I love this magic mist. It comes in especially handy when I travel because traveling robs your hair and skin of moisture.  So I mist everything;my face after I wash and tone - before my serum and moisturizer, my body before applying body lotion and to my hair and clothes to get rid of static.

Here was a little test to see if how well the NaPCa Moisture Mist holds the moisture compared to general water or oils.

First we sprayed the little mirror (on top) with a water spray bottle. The square mirror with the NaPCa Moisture Mist. Then we waited about 20 minutes.

First of all, this was a reminder of how hard it is to take pictures of mirrors. Ha! However, as you can see the mirror on the left still holds moisture while the water sprayed mirror now only has dried water spots.   

This demonstrates how humectants ( a substance used primarily to help retain moisture) such as NaPCa hold on to water in the formula, keeping it from evaporating. In this same way, these humectants bind to water present in the formula and hold it to your skin, so the water cannot dry and dissipate into the air. 

Here is the result of a second test on two different humectnats: the NaPCa and Mineral Oil. We placed a dried apricot in each of these jars. The one on the left was covered in NaPCa while the right jar was covered with Mineral Oil (also called Baby Oil). After a day's time the NaPCa Moisture Mist (which also includes  Hyaluronic Acid) has absorbed into the cellular structure and plumped the fruit to its original shape. Mineral Oil (which is found in many cosmetic products) does nothing to plump up the wrinkles in your face or the dried apricot.

Adequate moisturization is very important in skin care because it helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles on the skin surface. NaPCa is a key humectant that is more effective than mineral oil-based products or water alone in establishing the safeguarding healthy moisture levels in your skin.

Beauty Tip: How to better absorb all your products into your skin.

When using all these wonderful products, you want to make sure they are all getting absorbed properly into the skin. My advice to get the most out of your product is to exfoliate at least twice a week so your skin absorbs all the magical ingredients for the best results.
